Go lava caving and relax at one of the world's top spas, the Blue lagoon!
The Blue Lagoon is a geothermal spa and is the single most popular attraction in Iceland.
The water is rich in silica and sulphur that helps make your skin shine like a baby. The Blue Lagoon also operates a Research and Development facility that helps find cures for skin ailments using the mineral-rich water.
The temperature in the bathing and swimming area is very comfortable, and averages 37–39 °C (98–102 °F). There´s a restaurant there and it´s a truly romantic and beautiful place one should not miss while in Iceland.
Leidarendi is a lava tube located in the Tvibollahraun lava field, close to the Blue Mountains in Southwest Iceland, about a 25 minutes drive from Reykjavik.
Go here to find the Leiðarendi cave tour.
Leidarendi is notable for its incredibly diverse and colourful scenery, and is considered a prime example of an Icelandic lava tube.
A distinctive feature of Leidarendi is various lava flakes that have fallen from its walls and roof, due to frost and erosion. These flakes indicate the many different lava streams that have flowed there subsequently throughout the ages. In the cave you will further see cave walls polished by lava streams along with stalagmites, stalactites and other fascinating formations. In winter you are likely to see glistening natural ice sculptures in the cave, adding further beauty to the already otherworldly scene.
As the cave is sensitive ask you to show uttermost care, so you and others may continue to enjoy the marvelous sights of Leidarendi and learn firsthand about Iceland's geological history, to which the cave bears proud witness.
Stori-Bolli is a crater south-east of Hafnarfjordur town about half an hour drive from Reykjavik. From this crater flowed the lava field Storabollahraun, in which the famous lava tube Leidarendi was created.
The crater is about 150 m in diameter and 900 m long. It is considered a true underground wonderworld. Here you can clearly see flow lines of the old lava as well as spectacular lava formations such as stalagtites and a truly peculiar formation known as the 'chandelier'. The bones of an Icelandic sheep who´s said to have lived there for centuries have been discovered in the cave, and research says that it may date as far back as the Saga Age.
